“Most Romantic experience in Florence”
Reviewed 1 June 2013

Villa Tolomei took my breath away upon arrival. The beautiful frescoes demonstrate the historical significance of the villa. The location is perfect, just minutes by taxi from Florence. The ambiance of the hotel is peaceful and serene, old world charm yet with modern conveniences and friendly, helpful staff. A day shopping in Florence, then return to the colonnade of the convent overlooking the chapels, swim in a luxurious pool surrounded by the natural beauty and watching the view altered by the changing light of day to night. Most romantic, breathtaking and a relaxing escape.

We were a little apprehensive about staying at the brand new Villa Tolomei before there were any tripadvisor reviews, but it was well worth the (minor) gamble. The staff told us that we were within the first 10 people to stay at the hotel, and they were clearly eager to please. The staff was extremely courteous and helpful, providing detailed driving instructions for our various excursions (Hertz was unable to give us a GPS!), and always available with useful local advice for Florence.

Although the hotel was not yet fully operational (we could still smell paint, the landscaping was in progress, and the restaurant and pool were not yet open), it is clear that this will be a top notch hotel once the renovations are complete. Our room was large, luxurious, and a great place to relax after long days of sightseeing. The bed was the most comfortable of our various hotels in Italy, the bathroom was freshly remodeled, and the wifi worked flawlessly. The hotel itself was beautifully decorated and had lovely views of Florence and the surrounding countryside.

The location served as a great base for visiting Florence as well as exploring Tuscany, which was just what we were looking for, but it may not be ideal if you are hoping to spend all of our time in the historical center of Florence. I think it would be difficult to stay here without a car, although I am sure they could get you a taxi to take you into town.

Overall, we had a great stay here and would definitely recommend it and return here ourselves.

Dear Mrs. Emily,

thank you very much for taking the time to write a review about Villa Tolomei Hotel. I perfectly understand your initial concern seeing no comments on TripAdvisor before your stay and we are all glad to read now that your trust on our property did not go lost. You are right when you state that we are not in the historical centre, and perhaps this is just a pro for those seeking a great base to explore Tuscany being anyway at a stone’s throw from the city center, reachable with a quick taxi ride. I thank you again also for the compliment “top notch hotel” and look forward to welcoming you again so that you can enjoy all our services!

Sincerely,

20+ work colleagues travelled to Italy for a conference and were fortunate enough to visit Grosseto, Florence and Rome. At the recommendation of our Italian hosts, the delegation stayed at the Villa Tolomei Hotel and Resort in Florence. Beautifully situated with incredible views over the city, this hotel (nearing the end of extensive renovation) did not disappoint. The communal rooms were well appointed with decoration in keeping with the region. Individual bedrooms were large, clean and shared the great views. Bar was incredibly well stocked and the barman Gianni was charismatic and great fun. Upon completion of the renovation, the hotel will boast a large swimming pool and a terraced restaurant nestled in the olive groves. A must for anyone wishing to enjoy the hustle and bustle of Florence whilst enjoying first rate relaxation. Needless to say that such a large delegation, from 3 different countries, did not come without their fair share of issues. However, the diligent professionalism of the staff and their genuine enthusiasm was no match for our difficult requests. Maira in the booking department could not have been more helpful. Charming and fun, she was a true ambassador for the hotel and went out of her way to ensure that our stay was a success. Thanks to everyone for a fantastic stay.

Dear Mr. Mark,

thank you so much for sharing your comments on TripAdvisor…and what a wonderful review! Your delegation was for us both a honor and a challenge, since we had for the first time the possibility to demonstrate to a fully booked hotel our enthusiasm and willingness to please all our guests, whatever was the need and issue. So, we are happy that the recommendation of your Italian hosts was a good one and we are eager to improve every day our service thanks also to your advices. Maira is an asset to the hotel and together with the enthusiasm of Gianni and of all the staff will make sure that every stay of our guests is a success. Thank you again for your fantastic words, we look forward to welcoming you back!

Sincerely,

Located in beautiful park like surroundings just 10-12 EUR taxa ride from downtown Florence (Firenze). Close enough to Florence that you can actually walk home in the night if taxies are not to be found (25 min walk). Neighborhood appears upscale and very attractive with old classic Florence manor houses.

We were probably one of the 10-15 first guests in this hotel that has been completely renovated. The hotel still has a quite strong paint smell, although not in our suite, and in few weeks this should be over. Everywhere it appears that materials and workmanship of the highest quality has been used.

The room in our case was a large suite: Exquisite, stylish, but not overly decorated. Great beds. From all windows we enjoyed the park like exteriors.

A nice touch: The mini bar was included in the room price. This added to the feeling of being a quest rather than just a costumer.

Breakfast was included. It was clearly better than other places I have stayed in Italy but not quite what I would expect from the price range. This could however be related to the fact that the hotel is not quite fully operational yet (no restaurant). With time this hotel might deserve an excellent rating.

Free wifi and parking included.
